    SSCR strives to sustain and disseminate high-quality and innovative research in the form of monographs and edited volumes, preferably in English, but in exceptional cases also in the French, German-, and Scandinavian languages.

    SSCR was previously included in the series Acta Universitatis Stockholmiensis (ISSN 0562-1070). A full list of publications can be found here. Volumes still in stock can be obtained through the editors.

    Critical Editions in Culture and Aesthetics

    Critical Editions in Culture and Aesthetics (CEiCA) (ISSN XXXX-XXXX) is a peer-reviewed series of scholarly editions of source texts published by Stockholm University Press. CEiCA aims to provide a publishing forum for translated, annotated, and introduced texts within the broad domain of culture and aesthetics, including, but not limited to, the disciplines of Art History, Heritage Studies, Curating Art, History of Ideas, Literary Studies, Musicology, and Performance and Dance Studies. 

    The ambition of CEiCA includes both to provide open access to manuscripts and out of print texts, and to introduce them with a contextualizing and critical apparatus. The series thus promotes the values of 1) making source texts available through digital means of access, and 2) recognizing critical editing as a scholarly achievement in its own right. English translations that make Swedish texts accessible to international scholarly communities are encouraged.   

    As the CEiCA publications are required to be the products of scholarly achievements, the series does not include facsimiles, reprints, or other editions without a critical apparatus that contextualizes, explains, problematizes, and evaluates the source texts through introductions, annotations, footnotes, further references, bibliography, indexing, etc.

    Language and Literature in Education

    The aim of the book series Language and Literature in Education (ISSN 2003-8542) is to disseminate studies of language education and literature in education. These are the main research fields of the Department of Language Education at Stockholm University, where most of the members of the Editorial Board are employed. These researchers are specialized in second, third and foreign language education, multilingualism, literacy, and literature in education. Although there are a few journals publishing general educational research in the Nordic countries, there is no forum for publications in the field of language education, and there is definitely a gap to fill, as regards educational perspectives on language and literature. Researchers operating in and outside Sweden are invited to send in proposals for monographs, thematic volumes, or collections of papers. The main language of publication is English. However, other languages are not excluded if motivated by the theme of the volume. Theoretical and empirical contributions are welcome.

    This book series aims to function as reference point for researchers occupied with educational aspects of language and literature, considering the structure and content of a range of school subjects, and to embody a forum for broad perspectives of educational studies with a focus on language development, literacy and literature.
